MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA — A former employee of a children’s swim school was sentenced this week to seven years in prison for running a child pornography website.

Danielle Sebenick, 29, of Glenside, also faces 10 years of probation upon release for her crimes, US Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams said.

In addition to running the illicit site, Sebenick, who was six months pregnant, spoke online about sexually abusing her child once it was born, authorities said.

Sebenick had pleaded guilty to charges in this case back in May 2019.

The investigation into her began in Nov. 2018, while she worked at the Kids First Swim School in Jenkintown.

Police soon discovered that Sebenick was the administrator of the child porn website, and that she used it to communicate with other offenders, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Sebenick gave birth in prison and family members assumed custody of the child.

“The thought of a mother bringing a child into the world with the plan to abuse him or her, a helpless infant, is almost unfathomable,” Williams said in a statement. “She will now spend years behind bars where she no longer poses a threat to our community.”

Sebenick’s arrest was the result of a joint task force called Project Safe Childhood, which marshals federal, state, and local resources to track and prosecute those who use the Internet to victimize children.
